Elevate Your Performance, In Style With Rudy Project

Rudy Project Malaysia Brunei had a product launch and concept store opening at Jaya Shopping Centre on Friday, Oct 31 2014.

I am not yet a user of Rudy Project so I thought I should go see and check out what's all the fuss about this brand. Anyways, Rudy Project is a company that offers a wide range of sunglasses, helmets, goggles among others. A product widely known by athletes and weekend warriors too.
I arrived early and after registering myself and waiting for other guests and VIPs to arrive, decided to check out their concept store.
Was shown a number of their products by this really helpful fella...
and I was seriously smitten by this model. Its removable insert easily snaps in and out of its frame. COOL!
Back to the launch - Rudy Project Malaysia launched the Lifestyle model; Sensor for men and Broomstyk for women with minimalist, decisive and striking design.

And the impactx2 unbreakable photochromic optics.
We were shown how durable the lenses are - with a hammer, no less!
The unveiling of the products and the people from Rudy Project - management, athletes and models.
and shortly after, the opening of Rudy Project Concept Store located at Ground Floor Concourse, Jaya Shopping Centre.

Now the question for me : should I get a pair soon? Sponsor please!!!
Hehehe

Lunch

Been hankering for some raw veges and the mix rice stall that I always frequent during lunch doesn't really have anything to offer in terms of salad or the Melayu term... ulam.

So I got this for lunch today and enjoyed it thoroughly.
A pack of supermarket bought salad and with a black pepper quarter chicken added, and it cost me RM10.00
 
Not that much cheaper than a serving of salad bought at Tony Roma's which, after discount cost me about RM11.75. ^^
 
Anyways, I think I need to find an excuse to eat Thai food so I can eat this too, soon. Hehehe
Yummy!

Oh yeah... can't wait for Saturday so me and the family can go eat at a nearby Ikan Bakar stall and I get to enjoy eating like a whole bunch of ulam there! Petai included. *rub hands*

2 More Months Left - My Race Calendar

Let's see...
 
We're approaching November soon. Two months left before we enter the year 2015!
 
I can't help to review and look back at my running activities and to plan for next year's. ^^
So these are the ones I did and will do in 2014. Only 18 races registered and I plan to register for the Newton Challenge as part of training at the end of December.

Rather an eclectic mix of distances ran this year, some I did alone, a few I ran with hubby and a few I did with the family.

This was errmmm... somewhat an improvement from last year. I registered for 25 races in 2013!

25 races sure cost me a pretty penny! It really was a bummer when I can't run in some of them (what we call a DNS) due to race postponement, commitment or injuries.

I can be rather prone to want to run in races for the company and for the crowd and sometimes that made me register for races on a whim, provided that it fits in my training plan.

Like the CAPAM race that I registered 2 days before the event, just because I need to run 21K that Sunday in accordance to my training plan and I didn't want to do it alone. So, bye-bye RM60.00 Hahaha

Anyways, I've registered for 2 races for 2015 so far.
One, in Melaka. In January.
Another, in Sabah. In April.

I've set my eyes on 9 races that I want to do next year. 9 BIG ones.

Hopefully, I won't succumb too much to temptation and suddenly have like, 29 races next year! *finger crossed*
 
If you ask me why I need to register and run in races; well, the answers are :
  • Safety (It's better for a lone female runner to run in races as part of her training than running alone). I don't run in groups. Not that I never tried.
  • Discipline - I can wake up at 4am for a race but I can be lazy to do it for a normal training run.
  • Mixture of routes and venues (this is to avoid boredom, mostly). And occasionally, running in races can also be a family vacation affair.
  • Company - being together with other like-minded people doing what we love.
  • Free flow of drinks(?) - isotonic, milo and yeah, get t-shirts too. HAHAHA

I'm looking forward to run with Son this Sunday at MAKNA Founder's Night Run in Putrajaya. It's a 5K fun run.

Then, the next morning; Son & Hubby will do a 3K run at SJMC run and Mommy a 7K.

Yeah, Mommy is a slave-driver. heh heh

Food Court Favourite

Once a week, I would head probably to Oasis Food Court in Mid Valley to eat something hearty for dinner. Son doesn't like the place but he begrudgingly agrees to go with me there. And I'd go somewhere he'd prefer on other nights as we usually spend Tuesday and Thursday evening together having our Mom & Son "date". ^^
Pan mee! Halal pan mee. And the kick is the chilli. If I don't have that chilli sauce, this pan mee would taste just so-so.

Taste wise; well... it had deteriorated from what it was when the food court was located just above where Gardens Cafe is located now, before it moved to the current location.

But I still visit the stall. The stall used to have a good prawn mee too but not really good for my taste anymore. 
This is another favourite place of mine to have dinner. And I almost always order the same thing. Plus other favourites like beef bulgogi and tteokbokki. 

Not located in a food court. It's at LG floor of Gardens Mall. Ko Hyang is a simple place to have pretty good Korean fare.

They just did a menu revamp so I'm not sure whether the quality/price/portion will remain the same in the future.

You know lah, Malaysian businesses. Once they do good, they start cutting corners.

I hope they don't.
